Stapelia Variegata (Stapelia Variegata)

A lovely Cacti sent to me by Sixpence last year i think, i let it ramble along the window sill indoors, noticed today as i was watering that it is in flower with a couple more buds coming. i was amazed how nice it was, also called the 'Star Flower'

brilliant flower SL ! I had one years ago when the kids were young, they loved the fact that the flower had a slightly odourus scent which as 6 to 10 year olds they would sniff it then make a great nose holding loud display of OTT disgust & run off laughing ( ah ! the memories ;-) It was also a gift from a friend, I lost it due to lack of growing info, I now have obtained another which should flower this year. My kids, now grown n flown with kids of their own still remember this plant.
